‘Oasis Of Now’, ‘Amoeba’ Win Awards at SEAFIC Development Lab
Malaysian filmmaker Chia Chee Sum’s Oasis Of Now won the SEAFIC Award at the fourth edition of the Southeast Asia Fiction Film Lab (SEAFIC) Open House (January 8-11), while Amoeba, from Singapore’s Siyou Tan, took the Open SEA Fund Award.
The prizes follow nine months of intense script and project development for the five selected projects, through the guidance of international experts. The winners were selected after live pitching sessions in front of international juries.
SEAFIC organisers described this year’s lab as “a challenging edition whereby most of the lab had to be conducted virtually”. The SEAFIC Open House usually takes place in Thailand either in Chiang Mai or Bangkok.
